Deep red color with black fruit aromas with oak and spice nuances. The palate shows tart blackberries and sour cherries, slightly acidic with little tannins. This full body wine had a short finish. A little pricy for OK, nothing special.

Pretty tasty. Mature. Kind of polished. Cherry. Hint of wood. Missing the next gear.

Smells like dark fruit, dry easy finish. Good Chianti.

Oak and vanilla are the first scents to come but a nice ripe cherry comes a while after. A pinch of pencil lead too in there? The palate is perfectly balanced with a nice cherry which plays along a noble acid backbone that goes a long way. A nice mouthfeel with some grip, cool rolling tannins that dry the rear of the palate just a tad, enough to bring everything some complexity. Oaky notes here and there too but not overwhelming. They complelent the whole. Nice rather long finish with cherry and vanilla. I kind of like this wine ✌🏻🇮🇹

50th Italian wine in here!

Amazing Chianti from an amazing (and steadfastly consistent) producer! Super cherry with beautiful tobacco and leather notes ends in a super-long quality finish! Dirk now, then drink some more!!
